SHORT WARS DO NOT EXIST WITHOUT INTELLECT

When in the course of human events, intelligent men come forth. 
Theodore Roosevelt once commanded his cowboys on a steer roundup, " Hasten Forward Quickly There." Then there was the George W. Bush group of cowboys.

SEN. LINDSEY GRAHAM TURNS GREEN WITH APOPLEXIA

According to video, Sen. Graham appeared on the FOX Sunday morning show and just got his knickers totally tied up in a knot. He was apoplectic, eyes bulging, hair standing on end, trying to reach through the camera to grab people by the neck, screaming that "we will all die" because President Obama is not taking ISIS/ISIL seriously enough according to the Graham doctrine of WAR ABOVE ALL ELSE !
Seriously, Sen. Graham seems to think that the ISIS/ISIL Army is going to load up, all 30,000 of them, onto the ISIS/ISIL Navy vessels or the ISIS/ISIL Air Force planes and said ARMADA will head out to America so that they can "KILL US ALL"
Oh yes, then there was one of his favorite phrases, "I WILL NOT ALLOW THIS PRESIDENT TO ----"
The only thing missing in this display is that his Left Hand Man, Sen. John McCain was somewhere else proclaiming that President Obama was personally responsible for the Middle East Wars of the last thousand years, all the while stating that there would be peace in the Middle East if only HE were President.
I did not and could not make this stuff up,

VIRGINS AND HEAVEN AND VAPOR

I wonder exactly how the terrorists belonging to ISIS/ISIL plan on having sex with the 32 virgins in heaven promised to them, if they themselves have been vaporized by a missile. I'm not talking dead or blown apart, I'm talking total vaporization as in molecules drifting around. It makes me very sad to think of the disappointment.
Simply sad,

SEN. AYOTTE NEEDS TO GO TO MILITARY SCHOOL

The good Senator said today on CNN that we need boots on the ground to act as spotters for our air strikes against ISIS. I simply cannot figure out how to explain to her that we have already flown over 150 missions and that SOMEONE was doing the spotting !
It is all true, look it up,

SEN. BOB CORKER TRIES TO FLY AND ANOTHER SENATOR TRIES TO FOLLOW

At 3:45pm today on the Senate floor, Sen. Bob Corker began a tirade about the Presidents' speech to be given tonight at 9:00pm. Note that the President has not spoken yet.
I have personally never seen so much arm flapping in my life. I realize that the Senator is not a very big guy, but I kept watching, thinking that he actually could lift off the floor. 
The irony of this is that as I was typing this, Sen. Bernie Sanders took the floor to speak about campaign spending and he too was trying to fly up off the floor. 
I am relieved to say neither Senator actually achieved liftoff.

53rd ATTEMPT TO REPEAL THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT OCCURS TODAY

The title of this post says it all. 
Well, almost all. The 53rd attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act is occurring under the 75th closed rule in the house since John Boehner became Speaker of the House.
For those of you that don't know the impact of a closed rule, it basically means that the debate must be on the bill as written without allowing any amendments or debate on the substance of any desired amendments. 
So much for Speaker Boehners promise for a more open House process. What a farce our congress has become. 
No wonder the congress currently has an approval rating of 14%.
